"This Charming Man"Season 3 Episode 13
Canadian airdate: December 10th, 2003
We begin in Coach Armstrong's math class. Emma and Chris are quite smitten with each other. Chris says to her, "So dooba dengwish, do red de chapcha, shooba dooba dooba?" I don't know what that means, but it melts Emma's heart.
It's class as usual until—Sean! Oh My God! Sean's making out with a girl in class! Way to be kickass. Amy has some sweet breasts too.
Anyway, someone stole a DVD player from the school. Emma suspects Sean and the Candy Bandits are behind it, as well as the theft of Mr. Simpson's magic laptop. Emma makes it her mission to get Sean caught.
Now to the B plot. Spinner, Jimmy and Paige are taking drivers ed. Their drivers training instructor is apparently Tom Cruise, and he is going to test the three to see which one is the Top Gun of Canadian economy car driving. The smart money is on Spinner.
The driving instructor is actually named Mr. Falcor; that's an awesome name. Because it's such an awesome name, Paige develops a crush on Mr. Falcor right on the spot.
At the Dot, Emma and Chris are on a date. Chris makes some weird comment along the lines of, "Shooba dooba dooba, I neva relly hed strobary shakes around heor anyting. Shooba dooba dooba." Who knows what that means, but at least Chris isn't talking in beat box sounds like he was doing before. God damn it Chris, learn English.
Then the Candy Bandits come in, and I tell you, you can cut the tension in the room with a knife! Whew. The Candy Bandits steal some candy bars from the Dot. Ha! That's why we call them the Candy Bandits. But Emma rats them out, and the Bandits are banned from the Dot for life. Actually, you'll see Jay and the gang back at the Dot next season. But, whatever.
Well, you can't hide anything from Spinner, who finds out about Paige's crush soon enough. This is trouble because Paige is Spinner's girl and his property. Mr. Falcor better watch his back.
At the next driving lesson, I tell you, you can cut the tension in the car with a knife! Whew. Spinner doesn't want Paige's eyes to wander, so he crashes the driver ed car, killing Mr. Falcor. Don't get in Spinner's way.
Emma wants to get Sean in trouble, so she tells Mr. Raditch that Sean and Jay are behind the school thefts. Soon the fuzz are all over Jay's ride, looking for the hot goods. When the cops find nothing, Sean tells Raditch, "Hey Superfag: fuck off." This lands him a month of Saturday detentions. Emma is pleased, but Chris is mad that Emma is still fixated on Sean. At least that's what I gather from Emma said. Chris in unintelligible.
Well, here we have Snake's birthday party, where they eat a computer. Emma apologizes to Chris and they get back together.
Also, Paige comes to the Dot to apologizes to Spinner for her crush. Spinner accepts, and Paige gives him a blowjob, right there at work. Oh, Spinner really is this charming man.Rating: A
I want to go to school at Degrassi so I can steal all their stuff. The Candy Bandits got away with swiping all those DVD players and computers from the school and didn't get caught. It helps that Degrassi is so well stocked with computer and other electronics that it took several weeks before anyone even noticed anything was missing. That made for a very nice episode.
Intensity Level: 100% Intense
Robbery, and Spinner's blind rage of jealousy are 100% INTENSE.
